Hi Larry,

Are you using the collection of NASA space images as the background?
That's a set of wallpapers that is specifically meant to switch up
every few minutes.

If you want to use just one image, you probably need to track that
image down, and set is as your background manually.  I'm not on my
Ubuntu box at the moment -- does anybody know where on the disk those
images are stored, so that we can give Larry some pointers on finding
them, and using just the one he wants?


" ... the original aphorism being 'In comparison with the ancients, we
stand like dwarfs on the shoulders of giants.' The image was a
commonplace by the time Newton used it, his one contribution being to
erase any sense that he himself might be a dwarf."
